    Have fun. Only seen them once over here - but they were very good.

    This one was not a Blue Angels but I thought it a cool shot.

    The Air National Guard air rescue in action.

    Some fine shots there. What were you shooting with? Not easy to get that kind of shot on a point&shoot (having said that, with the latest P&S cameras, it seems increasingly easy to get shots that would rival any prosumer model and various starter DSLRs). Like the Eagle(?) shot.

    Reminds me, I really must sort out the rest of my Farnborough shots!

    I was using a Olympus E-410 with 10.0 Megapixel digital camera.My computer was able to crop some of the shots to make it look a lot closer.I need to get some better lenses if I go to a air show again I saw some nice camera set ups there I would love to see there photo's.

    I shoot with a Canon 30D and either the 200mm f2.8L or a 70-300mm f4-5.6. I think I prefer the former, and do crop quite a bit (especially as, on a 1.6x body, the lens is effectively a 320mm anyway). It's fine for online stuff (72dpi) but for printing, I think I'd be found out quite quickly...

    Look at this one, for instance. Small, it'a fine, but full screen? Not so good...

    I just notice I got two lens when I bought my camera I took the one I take photo's of my watches and left the telephoto at home a 40-150mm would of been better than a 14-42mm lens not bad with the wrong lens.
